Abstract

We show the strong optically induced interactions between discrete metamolecules in a metamaterial system and coherent monochromatic continuous light beam with a spatially tailored phase profile can be used to prepare a subwavelength scale energy localization. Well-isolated energy hot spots of a fraction of a wavelength can be created and positioned on the metamaterial landscape offering new opportunities for data storage and imaging applications.
